All in all, it was not the best of keynotes, but it was still fun. I was able to arrange to have the satelite broadcast of the keynote played here on campus. Several members of the IT staff joined Elizabeth, Braz, Matt, Liz, and myself for the festivities.
Plenty of other Mac sites will be covering the events, so I won’t go into those details. The new iMac is cool, but not that big of a deal. The fact that they will be charging for formerly free Mac.com features stinks, but is quite understandable. iTunes 3 is a nice upgrade, but probably not as big a deal as some might like us to think. iSync is cool, and will be nice when it works with the Palm.
So what do I think? Well, Apple did not do anything ground-breaking today. Although I would have liked it if they had, I can understand why it might not be the best thing in today’s economic times. If they had introduced something great and new, I don’t know that people would go out and buy it like crazy, so they seem to be taking the slow and steady approach.
In the end I want Apple to do well, so I can put up with one not so great keynote.
